1921 



20 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

A Corporate Communion was held the following morning. 

At the second business session the subject of discussion was that of 
religious education. It seems a very terrible thing, that so many of the 
youth of the land, are growing into manhood and womanhood with no 
proper training along religious lines. They choose. to go to state institu- 
tions which are larger and better equipped, instead of to our own Church 
Schools and Colleges. The Church needs more and better Schools. It 
ought to be possible for every child of the Church to receive its educa- 
tion in a Church institution? 

The Convocation was pleased to welcome into its body two new 
«nembers in the persons of the Rector at Lenoir, Rev. Basil M. Walton, 
and the Rev. Mr. Guignard, of Lincolnton. We are glad that the vacant 
places are filled and wish for them a splendid work. 

The Convocation, upon motion, voted to accept the invitation of the 
Penland School for its meeting in August. 

A fine spirit of brotherhood is felt in our Convocation, and this 
was manifested all through our meetings. 

S. B. STROUP. 

The Ven. John H. Griffith presented the following, which 
was, on motion, received: 

Report of Archdeacon Griffith for Year 1920 

Bishop Horner and Fellow Workers of the District of Asheville: 

The year of 1920 was full to overflowing with rich experiences in 
matters pertaining to my duties. From my first service at St. Paul's 
Church, Glen Alpine, Burke Co., on the coldest day of the year, until 
my last service at St. Paul's, Edneyville, on December 30th, many hallowed 
privileges were mine. 

With one or two exceptions, interest of a manifested nature, grow- 
ing congregations, spirit of hearty co-operation, self-sacrificing endeavors, 
have marked each of my visits to the 30 Churches. Everywhere the 
cordial hand of welcome was extended and an invitation to "come back 
soon" accorded me. Owing to many vacancies in our Qerical ranks, my 
field has been somewhat extended. While unable to accept all the invita- 
tions to "come over and help us," yet our services 'numbered 179 in the 
13 counties visited. 

Seven thousand six hundred and eighty-one miles are nowadays not 
a great many miles to travel, yet when you attempt to cross mountains 
and go into isolated parts where transportation is far from normal, one 
may easily conjecture that rough riding is sometimes the order of the 
day and trip. On one of my trips from Blowing Rock to Boone, the 
truck in which I was riding broke down and in consequence I received 
a wound which weakened me considerably from loss of blood and to my 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 21 

last day I shall carry the scar. For over 2% hours I had to travel by 
slow stages, with my arm elevated above my head to reach a doctor who 
could dress the said wound. Think of taking seven hours and twenty 
minutes to travel twenty-one miles m a hurry to reach an appointment 
I speak of these not in any sense of lamentation, but only to say that the 
Wtfelcome and the congregations that await at the other end the services 
of the Church are worthy of all the deprivations and inconveniences and 
suffering. 

Sometimes our optimism is taken for egoism, but God knows that 
optimism is a necessary asset in doing work of any kind, more especially 
missionary work amongst people who know nothing of our ways and 
practices, and who are somewhat prejudiced against the Church. To 
reach these people has, been my prayer, and I want to tell you people 
of the District that many of these people are now attending our services 
for the first time in their lives, — ^many coming miles to do so. Many 
asking your missionary to abide with them in their homes. Asking for 
literature of the Church. Asking many questions which prove that we 
are beginning to take our rightful position in the villages and towns and 
cross roads where we are desirous of being known and better known. 

Within the last moon two Methodist Ministers and two Baptist 
Ministers have asked your servant to come and preach in their Churches, 
so as to give you and my Church a "send-off** with their respective folks 
and the community in general. 

Thank God the time is ripening for the opportunity to carry across 
these wonderful mountains the Sacraments of Jesus Christ as you and I 
have received them. Now listen : "Dr. Henry Synder, President of Wof- 
ford College, Spartanburg, said, on April 8th, that the entire South be- 
longs to the Methodist and Baptist. That other denominations may be 
accomplishing something in this territory, but that the preponderance of 
numbers of Methodists with their two and one-fourth millions and Bap- 
tists with their four million members justifies the statement that the fu- 
ture of the South depends on the Methodists and Baptists." A Presid- 
ing Elder said to me recently that Bishop Darlington (of his Church) 
had asked him "if he thought that the Baptists were going to take the 
people of our N. C. mountain counties." I replied, no more than you 
Methodists are going to do so. You people lost your opportunity when 
you sent to the mountain churches some of your most poorly prepared 
ministers. 

Men and women of God's divinely instituted Church, if you believe 
that the Holy Spirit is guiding His bride as the Founder meant it to be, 
let's be up and about and give to the manliest of our Anglo-Saxon race 
what you and I have and^ love. 

Since we haven't a Diocesan paper to acquaint each other of our 
work, and as the larger Parishes in the District are too busy to give us 
an opportunity to tell their Parishioners something of their sisters and 



22 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

brothers who are yet in ecclesiastical swaddling clothes and creeping 
garments, I have taken these few moments to tell you these things here 
in our Annual Convention. 

Brethren of the District, Bishop Shayler of Nebraska recently said: 
"The Church is challenged by the world today to show sufficient reasons 
for its existence, or else give up the struggle in ignominious death." 
Shall we give up our work in these Counties? Ten thousand times ten 
thousand — ^no. Never. 

What shall we do then? Get together with God and pull together 
with God for His Kingdom. 

Our Bishop's burdens must be ours. Our demonstrated sympathy 
must go to him. 

Our heartiest co-operation must be at his beck and call and command. 

One more thought and I am done. Can't the Convention stop its 
business for 15 minutes sometime today or tomorrow and take stock of 
the needs of several of my mission points. Til prove to you that the 
time will be well spent for others if not for ourselves.

Report of the Committee on Constitution and Canons. 

The Committee on Constitution and Canons to which was referred

The Committee on Constitution and Canons offered the fol- 
lowing resolutions :

Canons) be and are hereby made in the Canons of the District, to conform 
with the Canons of the General Convention. 

Resolved, further, That under the head of Canons of the General 
Convention referred to in the Canons of the District the following 
(numerical) alterations be made. 

On motion the resolutions were referred back to the Commit- 
tee in view of further amendments in the near future. 

On motion of the Rev. Charles Mercer Hall it was 

Resolved, That the report of the Committee on Communion Wine be 
received, and that the Committee be continued. 

The Rev. Charles Mercer Hall offered the followiuij pre- 
ambles : 

Whereas a clerical error has made it appear on page 38 of the 
Journal of 1920, that the report of the Special Committee on Communion 
Wine, recommending that "until otherwise advised, the Priests of the 
Missionary District of Asheville be allowed to administer the Holy 
Communion by using the * fruit of the vine' either fermented, or unfer- 
mented"; and 

Whereas^ on page 102 of the Journal of the General Convention of 
1886 (House of Bihops), the Bishop of Long Island offered the following 
resolution : 

"Resolved, That in the judgment of the House of Bishops, the use 
of the unfermented juice of the grape as the lawful and proper wine of 
the Holy Eucharist is unwarranted by the example of our Lord, and an 
unauthorized departure from the custom of the Catholic Church." Which, 



26 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

on montion, was adopted; and whereas, at the Lambeth Conference of 
1888 (see page 119) "The Five Lambeth Conferences," the following reso- 
lution was formally adopted, viz: "That the Bishops assembled in this 
Conference declare that the use of unfermented juice of the grape or any 
liquid other than true wine diluted or undiluted, as the element in the 
administration of the cup in Holy Communion is unwarranted by the ex- 
ample of Our Lord, and is an unauthorized departure from the custom of 
the Catholic Church,'' and Whereas, the Bishops in Council, as reported 
on page 189 of the Journal of the General Convention of 1919, declare 
that "Wheaten bread, and pure natural wine, separately consecrated, are 
the true, and requisite elements for the celebration of the Holy Com- 
munion." 

In place of the resolution appended to these preambles, the 
Rev. J. W. Cantey Johnson offered the following: 

Resolved, That as a substitute, the resolution be omitted, and the 
records of the Lambeth Conference, and of our House of Bishops, be 
spread upon the Minutes of this Church. 

On Motion, the preambles and substitute for the original 
resolution were adopted. 

Mr. Harmon Miller presented the following report and reso- 
lution, which were, on motion, adopted: 

Report of Finance Committee. 

We beg to report that we have examined the District Treasurer's 
accounts, and have also had them examined by an accountant who has 
reported that they are correct, and the same have been printed. 

We have also examined the statement of receipts and disbursements 
of Wachovia Bank and Trust Company for the account of the Missionary 
District of Asheville, and find the same correct. The Wachovia Bank 
acts as agent of the District, holding the securities of what is known as 
the Ravenscroft Permanent Fund. During the year, there have been no 
additions to this Fund, the total principal in their hands having been 
$58,533-78. The income is paid by them to the Treasurer, Rev. Mr. Stubbs. 
Our last year's report showed that there should be turned over to the 
Wachovia Bank $4,000.00 in bonds, which were put up as collateral security 
to a Trustee note. By an oversight, when they were released on payment 
of this note, they remained in the hands of Mr. Stubbs, Treasurer, who 
received the interest, and has accounted for same until the present time. 
Now, however, they have been turned over to the Wachovia Bank, thus 
bringing the Ravenscroft Permanent Fund to a total of $62,533.78. In 
this connection, the Finance Committee would like to express its apprecia- 
tion of the complete and accurate report furnished them by the efficient 
Treasurer, the Reverend Alfred H. Stubbs. 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 27 

Wc regret to state that we have been unable to obtain satisfactory 
accounts from the various schools of the District We suggest that all the 
schools of the District be ordered to install a uniform standard system of 
bookkeeping, and that each school be instructed to render the Chairman of 
the Finance Committee a monthly report of receipts and expenditures. 
From these monthly reports, a twelve-months' statement at the end of 
the year, could be obtained and printed with the Treasurer's report. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HARMON MILLER, Chairman, 
W. VANCE BROWN, 
KINGSLAND VAN WINKLE. 

We offer the following resolution: 

That all the Schools of the District be ordered to install a uniform 
standard system of bookkeeping on forms to be furnished by the Finance 
Committee, and that each school be instructed to render the Chairman of 
the Finance Committee a monthly report of receipts and expenditures on 
forms to be furnished by the Finance Committee. 

HARMON MILLER, Chairman, 
W. VANCE BROWN, 
KINGSLAND VAN WINKLE. 

On motion of Mr. Charles E. Waddell, it was 

Resolved, That Canon II be amended by striking out the word "male" 
in lines (5) and seven (7), the same to be referred to the Committee on 
Constitution and Canons. 

On motion of the Rev. James B. Sill, it was 

Resolved, That the Rev. Frederick D. Lobdell be asked to speak to 
the Convention on his work at Oteen Hospital. 

Rev. Mr. Lobdell, limited to ten minutes, made an address 
according to the above resolution. 

The Rev. Alfred H. Stubbs presented the following report, 
which was, on motion, adopted: 

During the year 1920, the members of the Council of Advice, of 
the Board of Trustees, of the Finance Committee, the Secretary and 
Treasurer of the Church Pension Fund Committee, and also Mr. Chaun- 
cey D. Beadle, Mr. Reginald Rowland, Mr. William L. Balthis, of Gaa- 
tonia, and Mr. A. C. Henderson, of Hickory, were elected members of 
the Committee under the Rule. 

To continue the work of the Nation-Wide Campaign an Executive 
Committee was elected, consisting of the Rev. Arthur W. Farnum, Mr. 



28 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

W. Vance Brown, Mr. Chauncey D. Beadle, Mr. Reginald Howland, and 
all the members of the N. W. C. Committee. 

The rent of the house in Biltmore, occupied by the Archdeacon, 
amounting to $40.00 per month, was assumed by the Committee, begin- 
ning with June ist, 1920. 

The Rector of Trinity Church, Asheville, was given charge of the 
Missions at Grace, Haw Creek, and Chunn's Cove, in addition to the 
Church of the Redeemer. 

The receipts have been $8,481.21, and the Disbursements, including 
last year's debit balance, $8,867.86, leaving a debit balance of $586.65, 
which has since been wiped out. 

We have received $9,800.00 from the Domestic and Foreign Mis- 
sionary Society, which sum, added to our own fund, has met the salaries 
due twenty-one of our Missionary Clergy. 

In addition to this, by the aid also of the N. W. C, $10,258.14, has 
been paid to the Treasurer of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary So- 
ciety, which now goes by the name of The Presiding Bishop and Council. 

The Liberty Bonds, part of the contributions for the N. W. C. by 
the Wilkesboro Parish, were not listed in the Treasurer's Report, their 
cash value being uncertain. They are now in the process of conversion, 
which may enable us to dispose of them, for the benefit of the Com- 
mittee's financial responsibilities. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALFRED H. STUBBS, 

Treasurer. 

Mr. Haywood Parker presented the following report of the 
Committee on Diocesan Organization which was, on motion, 
adopted : 

The undersigned Committee appointed at the last Convention '*to 
prepare all necessary papers relating to diocesan organization," and to 
**present a full report" to this Convention, respectfully submits that for 
reasons hereinafter stated, that it has not prepared any papers relating 
to Diocesan organization but presents the following Report as to the 
requirements of the Constitution and Canons of the Church for the erec- 
tion of a Missionary District into a Diocese. 

Article 5, Section i of the Constitution provides that, 
"A new Diocese may be formed with the consent of the General 
Convention, and under such conditions as the General Convention 
shall prescribe by general Canon or Canons, by the erection into a 
Diocese of the whole or any part of one or more Missionary Dis- 
tricts;   ♦. 

"The proceedings shall originate in a Convocation of the Clergy 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 29 

sind Laity of the Missionary District called by the Bishop for that 
purpose   ♦. 

"When it shall appear to the satisfaction of the General Conven- 
tion by a certified copy of the proceedings and other documents and 
papers laid before it, that all the conditions for the formation of the 
new Diocese have been complied with and that it has acceded to the 
Constitution and Canons of this Church, such as new Diocese, shall 
thereupon be admitted to union with the General Convention." 

Section 7 of the same Article provides: 

'The consent of the General Convention to the erection of a new 
Diocese shall not be given until it has satisfactory assurance of a 
suitable provision for the support of the Episcopate." 

It is thus seen that the Constitution of the Church requires the fol- 
lowing steps to be taken in the erection of a Missionary District into a 
Diocese : 

1. The Bishop of the Missionary District must call a Convocation 
of the Clergy and Laity for that purpose. 

2. The proceedings must originate in such a Convocation. 

3. The proceedings must comply with the conditions prescribed 
by the general Canons. 

4. Certified copies of the proceedings and other required papers 
showing compliance with the conditions and that the Constitution 
and Canons of the Church have been acceded to must be furnished 
to the General Convention. 

5. Satisfactory assurance of suitable provision for the support of 
the Bishop must be furnished the General Convention. 

It becomes necessary, therefore, to ascertain what conditions the Gen- 
eral Convention has prescribed by general Canons for the erection of a 
new Diocese. 

Canon 55 on New Dioceses provides: 

Section i. Whenever a new Diocese shall be formed * * * in a 
Missionary District, and such action shall have been ratified by the 
General Convention, the Bishop of the  * * Missionary District 
within the limits of which the Diocese is formed, * * * shall there- 
upon call the Primary Convention of the new Diocese for the purpose 
of enabling it to organize, and shall fix the time and place of holding 
the same, such place being within the territorial limits of the new 
Diocese." 

"Section 4. Whenever a new Diocese shall have organized in Pri- 
mary Convention in accordance with the provisions of the Constitu- 
tion and Canons in such case made and provided, and in the manner 
prescribed in the previous Sections of this Canon and shall have 
chosen a name and acceded to the Constitution of the General Con- 



30 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

vention in accordance with Article 5, Section i of the Constitution, 
and shall have laid before the General Convention certified copies of 
the Constitution adopted at its Primary Convention and the proceed- 
ings preparatory to the formation of the proposed Diocese, such new 
Diocese shall thereupon be admitted into union with the General Con- 
vention." 

After a careful study of the Constitution and Canons your Commit- 
tee is of the opinion that to give the proceedings force and validity, it 
is essential that initial steps be taken in a Convocation of the Qergy and 
Laity of the Missionary District called by the Bishop for that purpose. 
We do not believe that any such proceedings are valid or effective unless 
they originate in such a Convocation so called by the Bishop; and as ne 
such call was made, your Committee feels that the initial proceedings 
can not be had at this Convention. 

As the Bishop in his address to this Convention has now issued the 
formal call necessary for such a Convocation to be held at the same 
time and place as the Convention of the District for 1922, your Com- 
mittee requests further time within which to prepare the necessary resolu- 
tions, etc., for that Convocation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HAYWOOD PARKER, 
HERBERT D. MILES, 
WM. L. BALTHIS. 

On motion of the Rev. H. Norwood Bowne, it was 

Resolved^ That a Special Committee consisting of three Qergymen,

HARRY M. ROBERTS, 
WM. L. BALTHIS, 
JNO. H. PEARSON. 

On motion the recommendation of the Committee was

The Treasurer presented his report as printed, which was, 
on motion, adopted. 

The Rev. Alfred H. Stubbs was re-elected Treasurer. 

On motion of Chas. E. Waddell, it was

the provisions of the Church Pension Fund, and that the said Convention 
request the Bishop to appoint a committee of three to investigate this case. 

Mr. Haywood Parker presented the following report, which 
was, on motion adopted : 

Trustees' Report, 192 i. 

In addition to the performance of such routine acts as the duties of 
their position have made necessary, the Trustees have since the last report 
taken the following mentioned acts affecting the property of the District: 

The vacant lot in Leicester was sold and conveyed to J. M. Carver 
for $200.00. This lot was purchased many years ago when the Mission 
at Leicester was in a thriving condition, and it was hoped there would 
eventually be need of a Rectory, and the lot was acquired for that use. 
The Mission however became weakened through the death and removal of 
the members, and finally ceased to exist. For some years past no member 
of our Church has been living in that neighborhood. The Church had 



32 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

fallen into decay, and was sold last year for old lumber. There was bo 
prospect of reviving the Mission and the Trustees deemed it best to sell 
the vacant lot and place the money in the Church Building and Repair 
Fund. The Church lot will not be sold, as it contains the graves of many 
old residents of the neighborhood, some of whom were communicants and 
founders of the Mission. 

On May 25, 1920, the Trustees executed a deed conveying to 
Canton Junior Home the vacant lot in Canton, Haywood County, which 
had been purchased as a site for a Church. It was decided that a lot 
more suitable for this purpose could be acquired. The $1,500.00 paid by 
the Canton Junior Home was used in part paying paving assessments on 
the lot sold and in purchasing another lot more conveniently located, and 
the balance held to be used in building a Church on the lot acquired. 
On June 22, 1920, the Trustees executed a deed conveying to J. R. 
Warren the Mission House and lot at Balsam, Jackson County, for $650. 
This Mission House had not been occupied for some years and was fall- 
ing into decay, and as there was no apparent prospect of needing the 
house for Mission purposes, it was deemed best to sell it. 

A few years ago the Trustees decided to set aside a lot in the Roeb- 
ling lands as a site for the Archdeacon's residence. The Board of Mis- 
sions agreed to let us have $10,000 with which to build the house. It 
was decided not to build until the costs should become more reasonable. 
In the meantime an opportunity arose of purchasing a comparatively new 
house and a large lot on one of the best residential streets in Asheville 
for the money donated by the Board of Missions plus the lot in the 
Roebling lands. After careful investigation the Trustees considered the 
price reasonable, and as it would immediately give the Archdeacon a 
suitable home, which he was compelled to have, the purchase was made, 
and the Trustees on March 16, 192 1, executed a deed to Mrs. Ella Bauer 
for a lot 65 feet wide and 140 deep in the Roebling lands, paid her the 
money donated by the Board of Missions, and took from her a deed to 
the house and lot on the south side of Hillside Street in Asheville. 

The Trustees recommended the adoption of the following Resolu- 
tion: 

Resolved, That the action of the Trustees in selling and conveying the 
vacant lot in Leicester, Buncombe County, to J. M. Carver, and in selling 
and conveying the vacant lot in Canton, Haywood County, to Canton 
Jtmior Home, and in selling and conveying the Mission House and lot at 
Balsam, Jackson County, and in selling and conveying the vacant lot in 
the Roebling lands in Asheville to Mrs. Ella Bauer, as reported by the 
Trustees, be and the same are hereby, each and all approved, ratified and 
confirmed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HAYWOOD PARKER, 

Secretary for Trustees.

Report of the Nation-Wide Campaign Committee. 

Presented by the Rev. Samuel B. Stroup, Sect'y. 

The N. W. C. Committee begs to make the following report: 

Your Committee at last Convention was elected to carry on the work 
of the N. W. C, but at that time the Convention did not specifically desig- 
nate its duties, nor assign to it any powers. The Committee therefore, 
being unable to function by Canon, as had been recommended by the Cen- 
tral Office, sought its authority at the hands of the Missionary Commit- 
tee, to which it was referred by the last Convention. The Missionary 
Committee, in full sympathy with the project of the N. W. C, elected 
therefore from its own membership for the most part an Executive Com- 
mittee, which enabled it to function along the general lines of the pro- 
posed Bishop and Council. 

The Committee elected the Chairman of its six departments and 
Executive Secretary, who were charged with carrying out as far as pos- 
sible the plans and purposes of the General Church as suggested by the 
Handbook of 1920. 

The Executive Secretary following the advice of the Committee, 
opened an office and became a clearing house of information, and in a 



34 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

way a go-between the Central office and each Parish and Mission. 
Through this office there has been distributed 33,6oo pieces of literature 
of various kinds and from it has been written i,8oo letters on various 
subjects which have had to do with the Campaign. 

In addition to this work several conferences were arranged for and 
carried out to the help of the Church. The first conference of a general 
nature was held in Trinity Church, Asheville, August 31st, at which con- 
ference Dr. Milton was present, with twenty Clergy and various Lay- 
men. Other conferences were held at Hendersonville, Waynesville, Gas- 
tonia, Wilkesboro and Lenoir, and visits paid to many other Parishes 
in regard to the Campaign. 

The Executive Committee was asked to prepare a list of Priorities 
or Askings from the General Church, which it did. The General Church 
however has not been able as yet to give all we have asked for but much 
has been assigned to our work. 

The Committee feeling that the matter of first importance was 
Clerical Salaries has been able to fix a minimum salary for the Clergy 
and with funds with which to pay them. 

The schools came next and have been provided for, not as needs 
demand, but as generously as possible and for the first time no begging 
has had to be done for that purpose. We shall hope as tho Campaign 
advances a greater amount will be available for all purposes in the District 

The Campaign this year, while lacking the thrilling enthusiasm of 
the first year has nevertheless demonstrated that for the most part our 
people were sincere in their professions. With criticisms from many 
sources of the general administrations from those who might have more 
properly have lent their loyal assistance to the Church, and with an unex- 
pected slump in the business world which has been widely felt, the Parishes 
and Missions generally have met their obligations and in several instances 
have increased them. This, says Dr. Milton, is a matter of congratula- 
tion to the District, which he says has set a mark for the larger and 
richer Dioceses. If the whole Church today was interested in Mis- 
sions as the District of Asheville there would be more money in the 
general treasury than could be used. Our people are giving for this pur- 
pose more per capita than the richest Dioceses in the Church. Our peo- 
ple are giving $3.43 and New York is giving $3.15. We should fee! a 
great pride in this fact 

In December, according to plan, Missions were arranged for in many 
of our Parishes and Mission Stations. The Central Office sent to us the 
Rev. Dr. Carstensen of Holy Hood Parish, New York City, who made 
a wonderful impression wherever he went Our own Qergy loyally 
responded to the call and lent themselves to this work and much good was 
accomplished is asserted from many sources. We believe that a yearly 
Mission should be held in every place, and at the time fixed by the Gen- 
eral Church, an Executive body. 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 35 

Our work is not finished. We are confident that the Church in 
Asheville, while making a great advance, has not yet reached its limit of 
giving and serving but we are encouraged and emboldened by the work 
which has been accomplished and thank God and take courage for the- 
new enterprises for the King and the Kingdom. 

We are thankful for the opportunities which have been ours, in 
bringing in our poor way the challenge of the Church to the loyalty and 
devotion of our people, and are confirmed in our faith in their capacity 
for increasingly greater things. 

We shall, in closing like to call your attention to the following 
recommendations : First. In view of the fact that the N. W. C. is still 
in progress and that much is yet to be done. We recommend that some 
organization similar to that one in operation be continued for the pur- 
pose of seeing as a clearing house of information a distributing center 
for literature and for the holding of such conferences as may be deemed 
expedient or demanded by the Central Office. Second. That the Canon 
on the Bishop and Council be passed as recommended by the Central 
Office. 

S. B. STROUP. 

Secretary. 

On motion of the Rev. James B. Sill it was 

Resolved, That the report of the Secretary of the Nation-Wide Camr 
paign Committee be accepted, with our deep appreciation of its work,

On motion of Mr. Haywood Parker it was 

Resolved, That a Committee of five men, and five women be ap- 
pointed as a Committee to continue the work of the Nation-Wide Cam- 
paign, with authority to employ such assistants as may be approved \xf 
the Bishop, and Finance Committee, such assistants to be paid from the 
general funds of the District. 

On motion, a rising vote of thanks was given to the Reverend 
Louis G. Wood, Field Secretary of the Nation-Wide Campaign, 
for his valued address given at the Woman's Auxiliary Service 
held last evening. 

A recess was taken.

The Rev. Walter J. Smith addressed the Convention in the 
interest of the Thompson Orphanage. 

On motion of the Rev. John C. Seagle, it was 

Resolved, That the report of the Thompson Orphanage, when re- 
ceived, be accepted, and printed in the Journal. 

The Rev. James W. Cantey Johnson, the Rev. H. Norwood 
Bowne, the Rev. Willis G. Clark, and Mr. William L. Balthis, 
Mr. William T. Lindsey, and Mr. Harmon Miller were elected 
as Deputies to the Synod of the Fourth Province. 

The Rev. Samuel B. Stroup presented the following re- 
port, which was, on motion, accepted : 

Report of the Committee on the State of the Church. 

Your Committee on the State of the Church begs leave to present 
for your consideration the following report: 

Your Committee is conscious of the limitation imposed upon it both 
from without and within. It is conscious of the evident fact that no 
set of eyes would observe the same thing, that no two minds would 
be impressed with the knowledge of the same fact. We therefore, your 
Committee, can but speak as we have been moved to do, and if we 
be accused of making a too encouraging report, it is because we are by 
nature hopeful and optimistic. 

The Church is, we believe, awake to its opportunities and is on the 
whole endeavoring to make use of them. The people of the Church have 
had a new baptism of the Spirit which has been demonstrated in a 
tangible way with material things. It has been astonished, I think, at 
its own capacity to do, and give, and be. It has had held before its eyes a 
program of service which a short while ago would have made us gasp 
with dismay. It has been willing to adventure and this proves that the 
Church has faith in itself and its task. It is by such a faith that we 
achieve. 

There have been in several instances unfortunate vacancies. It is 
always difficult to keep the peoples' interest in a work, which is without 
a leader. It has been very difficult to find Qergy who are fitted to the 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 43 

tasks which are peculiar to the District whose service can be obtained with 
the salaries which we are able to pay today. We believe that the Church 
does well to make haste slowly in the selection of its Ministers, and we 
think the best interest of the Church would be served best by a minister 
from and by our own people. 

There is work which needs to be developed. Such opportunities as 
that at Canton should not be lost, and we trust that funds may soon be 
provided to properly equip and maintain a work there. In such places 
we ought to put the strongest men we can obtain, and at whatever cost 

It is with much pleasure that we have observed the work of our 
Archdeacon. He has talents which peculiarly well fit him for such duties 
as he has to do, and he does these tasks with an enthusiasm which is 
invigorating to behold. 

A great field is ours, with unlimited opportunities to plant in the 
heart of a naturally devout and stable people, the teachings and practices 
of the historic and Catholic Church. So planted, in fertile soil, we may 
expect under God an increasingly abundant harvest. 

We have no faith in figures as a guide to what the Church is doing. 
A Confirmation Class of one, may and often does, mean more of good 
to God and his Church than a class of many. For those who are inter- 
ested in statistics we beg to call your attention to the following figures, 
which are as complete as we are able to make them at this time. 

There were baptized persons In 1920 6,222 In 1921 6,498 

Tliere were communicants In 1920 3,527 In 1921 3,928 

There were Sunday School 

Scholars In 1920 2,290 In 1921 Reporu 

Oat 

There were baptisms . . . In 1920 266 In 1921 278 

There were confirmations In 1920 148 In 192 1 144 

The above figures are by no means complete and if the reports were 
all in we should undoubtedly find that there are healthy increases in 
every department of Church activity. 

In closing we would beg to call your attention to the following 
recommendations: First. Since it seems impossible to fruitfully impress 
upon the clergy the necessity of having the Parochial reports returned in 
a reasonable time. That a committee of one Layman and one Laywoman 
be appointed at each station to assist the Qergy with this work. 

SAM'L. B. STROUP, 
WM. L. BALTHIS. 

On motion of the Rev. Samuel B. Stroup, it was 

Resolved^ That the cordial thanks of the Convention be given to 
the Rector, Wardens, and Vestry of St. Mark's Parish, Gastonia, and to 



44 DISTRICT OF ASHEVtLLE 

the Ladies of the Parish, for their generous hospitality, and entertatit* 
ment, and to the good people of the city. 

On motion^ it was 

Resolved^ That the hearty appreciation of this Convention be ex- 
pressed to the Pastor and People of the Presbyterian Congregation, for 
the use of their Church on the Wednesday evening of the Convention. 

On motion, it was 

Resolved, That the next meeting of the Convention be held at 
Waynesville, N. C, on the 26th, 27th and 28th days of April, 1922. 

On motion of Mr. Haywood Parker, it was 

Resolved, That the Bishop, if he deems best, be authorized to ap- 
point, as suggested by Mrs. Farnum, a Treasurer of the Little Helpers, a

4. Thomas Scholarship Account: 

On hand last report $i/»o.io 

Since May i, 1920, $1,000 has been loaned to the Raleigh Banking 
and Trust Company with interest at 6%. 

The Special Treasurer of the St. Mary's Fund— the $250,000 Fund 
for Buildings and Endowment — reports that the total pledges to date as 
now carried on the books for the campaign in the Carolinas amounts 
to $146494.67, distributed as follows: 

Diocese of North Carolina $ 84,552.92 

Diocese of East Carolina 24,517.00 

District of Asheville 5*907.50 

Diocese of South Carolina 30,000.00 

From outside the Carolinas 1,520.25 

$146497.67 
The quota for the Carolinas was set at $200,000. 

The campaign outside the Carolinas — ^the National Campaign, with 
headquarters in New York, was inaugurated last fall with the object of 
,raising $100,000. It is too early to judge the results of this part of the 
general campaign. To date some $3,358 has been paid in. 

The Treasurer has received from payments on the pledges in the 
Carolinas, interest on Liberty Bonds, etc., a total of $83,850.66 in cash and 
$4,550 in Liberty Bonds, War Savings Stamps, etc., a total of a little less 
than $90,000. Of this amount $17,825 has been expended on the campaign 
in the Carolinas; $7,500 for the National Campaign; and $50,000 has 
been applied to the Improvements in Smedes Hall and the Heating Sys- 
tem at the School. 

The above figures are approximately correct. No exact balances are 
accessible at the present. 

Payments on a large number of the pledges are in arrears and a 



46 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

renewed effort to bring these up to date would mean much to the Fund. 

The Trustees have to report that supplementing the improvements 
in the buildings and heating plant made in the summer of 1919, consid- 
erable additions to the equipment were made during the past summer, 
especially in modernizing the Laundry Equipment ($3,50o), and in im- 
proving the equipment of the Music Department ($3,500). 

The buildings and equipment are now in fair shape, though they 
will require a decided expenditure each year to keep them in the proper 
condition. 

To repeat the statement in the report of last year, while the School 
plant has been greatly improved, there are still many pressing needs to be 
met calling for liberal use of funds. Not to mention other matters, with- 
out any increase in the number of resident students, which is now limited 
to 200, there is need of much increased dormitory space, while the bonded 
debt of $40,000.00 is yet unpaid. 

Perhaps it should also be stated that the figures heretofore given in 
this Report do not include the one-half interest in the Trust Fund of $30,- 
000.00 created by Mr. Lawrence S. Holt and in the custody of the Provi- 
dent Life and Trust Co., of Philadelphia. 

The patronage of the School for the year 1920-21 is thoroughly sat- 
isfactory. The total enrollment is 275, of whom 212 are resident- 
students. There has been a larger attendance of resident students than in 
any previous year. There were 203 students in residence at the begin- 
ning of the year with a long waiting list, and more than a hundred ap- 
plications had to be declined on account of lack of room. 

The geographical distribution of the students is much as heretofore. 
The resident students represent 15 states and 20 dioceses. Seventy-five 
per cent (156) of them are from the Carolines; and 97% (206) are from 
the southern states. The Diocese of North t^arolina has had 62 girls in 
attendance; East Carolina, 54; Asheville, 15; South Carolina, 25; the Vir- 
ginia Dioceses, 15; the Florida Dioceses, 13; Georgia, 7; Maryland, 7; 
the District of Columbia, Alabama, Kentucky, New York, Pennsylvania, 
Illinois, Indiana, New Mexico, and Mexico, are also represented. 

In Church affiliation 70% (146) of the resident students are Episco- 
palians. There are 28 Methodists ; 18 Presbyterians ; 14 Baptists ; and 6 of 
other denominations. 

All of which is respectfully submitted, 

JOS. BLOUNT CHESHIRE, 
President of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's School. 

Raleigh, March 31, 192 1. 

The Secretary presented the following report, which was, on 
motion, received: 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 47 

Report of the Board of Managers of the Thompson Orphanage 

AND Training Institution. 

I. FINANCIAL. 

(a) Current Fund : 

During the past year the Orphanage has received strong financial support 
from the Church. The Treasurer's books were closed on December 31st, 
1920, with a cash balance of $7,714.61 in the bank; bills receivable by the 
Current Fund in the sum of $1,950.00, making total assets of $9,664.61, 
with all obligations paid in full. This substantial balance is remarkable 
in view of the fact that the Current Fund was used during the year to 
pay for repairs and permament improvements amounting in all to $2,550.00. 
The present financial health of the Orphanage is due in large measure to 
the amount and the regularity of the income derived from the Nation- 
Wide Campaign. The Diocese of North Carolina contributed through this 
fund $12,584.10, and the Diocese of East Carolina $2,576.06. The District 
of Asheville contributed its Thanksgiving Offering and made other dona- 
tions. 

(b) Endowment and Building Funds. 

The total amount of securities held for the Endowment and Building 
Funds of the Orphanage on April 15th, 192 1, was $30,935.65. 
Of this sum $10,926.65 belongs to the Edwin A. Osborne Building Fund. 
The Endowment and Building Funds do not include $10,000.00 in se- 
curities given to the Orphanage under the will of Mrs. Sadie Tucker 
Williamson. It was requested of the Executive Committee by Mr. William- 
son, that he be furnished with a suggestion for a memorial building for 
which the Orphanage is now in special need. In response to this request, 
the Executive Committee has submitted to Mr. Williamson a preliminary 
draft of plans for an infirmary, which he now has under consideration. 

II. personnel. 

(a) Officers : 

The office of Superintendent was made vacant by the action of the Board 

of Managers on April 19th, 1921, whereby the Rev. Walter J. Smith was 

retired as superintendent emeritus, on a pension of $900.00 from the 

Orphanage. It was further decided that a clergyman be secured as his 

successor to the office of superintendent, and the Executive Committee 

was authorized to find and employ a man for this position. 

Mr. J. H. Cutter resigned as Treasurer of the Permanent Fund during 

the year, and Mr. F. O. Qarkson was chosen in his place. 

The staff of workers at the Orphanage has remained unchanged during 

the past twelve months, with the exception of one teacher in the Senior 

Department. 



48 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

(b) Pupils: 

There are at present eighty children at the Orphanage, classified as fol- 
lows: From the Diocese of North Carolina, 49; from the Diocese of 
East Carolina, 13; from the District of Asheville, 18. During the year 
16 new children were admitted and 15 were discharged. 

III. HEALTH. 

The condition of the children's health has been carefully supervised by 
Dr. Wingate and Dr. Tucker, assisted by other physicians and dentists of 
the city of Charlotte. Five major operations and twenty-two minor 
operations have been performed. At two different times the children 
were confined by epidemics of measles and whooping cough. One girl 
has spent about nine months at the State Sanitarium for Tuberculosis, in 
Hoke County. The rule against admitting any tubercularly affected child 
is being stringently enforced. 

IV. FARM. 

The expenses of the farm this year, which includes salary of the farmer, 
seed and feed for stock, purchase of new stock, repairs and improve- 
ments on the farm property amounted to $4,258.28. The returns from 
the farm in products sold were $432.30. The farm product consumed in 
vegetables, fruit and stock feed was valued at $3,112.10. In addition to 
this, milk valued at $3,364.00 was produced. 

V. IMPROVEMENTS AND REPAIRS. 

The permament improvements at the Orphanage during the year, were : 

(a) The erection of a new laundry plant, cost, $2,000.00. 

(b) The construction of a bridge over the creek, at an approximate cost 
of $400.00. 

(c) Work on the farmer's cottage, amounting to $150.00. 

(d) Damage by fire to Bronson Hall, estimated at $1,200.00, was repaired 
by funds derived from insurance. 

Plans for the Edwin A. Osborne Building have been adopted by the 
Board of Managers, and the Executive Committee is authorized to pro- 
ceed at once to contract for the erection of this new cottage, which will 
accommodate twenty-four additional children under four years of age.

E. A. PENICK, JR., 
T. B. SMITH. 

Annual Rep(»t of the Rev. Walter J. Smith, Superintendent of the 

Thompson Orphanage and Training Institution. 

To the Board of Managers, 
Greeting : 

We close the fiscal year of 1920 in nearly as good financial condi- 
tion as we did the year previous, having a bank cash balance of 
$7,714.61, a six per cent note of $1,750.00, and an emergency fund of 
$200.00^ making a total of $9,464.61 to the credit of the current fund. 
This amount would be much larger if we take account of the new laun- 
dry built for Bronson Hall at a cost of about two thousand dollars, a 
bridge across the creek for four hundred dollars, and improvements on 
the bam and farmer's cottage costing about one hundred and fifty dollars. 

Making allowance for the permanent improvements on the farm, 
we would say that it cleared in what was sold and consumed $2,767.82. 
Of the amount received for general expenses our account shows that 
we got $12,584.10 from the Nation-Wide Campaign Fund of the Diocese, 
and $2,576.06 from the Diocese of East Carolina, with the usual Thanks- 
giving offerings and other donations from the District of Asheville. 

Mr. J. H. Cutter resigned the position of treasurer of the perma- 
nent Fund in March, and Mr. Francis O. Clarkson was chosen in his 
place. 

There were no changes in the working force of the Orphanage for 
the year except in the Senior Department of the School, Miss Bibb left 
at the close of the School year, June ist, and in September, Mrs. C. C. 
Anderson, of Charlotte, took charge for a month till we could get 
a permanent teacher. At the end of the month she was succeeded by Mrs. 
Lollie H. Reveley, of Rutherfordton, who remained fill January. 

On September the i6th, while we were all in Chapel at morning 
service, fire broke out in Bronson Hall from the Kitchen range and did 
damage to the extent of about twelve hundred dollars, which was fully 
covered by insurance. 



50 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

During the year we have received sixteen childr-ni, eleven being 
from the Diocese of North Carolina, three from the Diocese of East 
Carolina, and two from the District of Asheville. Twelve returned to 
their people for various good reasons and two were sent to the Patterson 
School and one went into training in St. Luke's Hospital, New Bern. The 
present number in the Orphanage is eighty — forty-nine being from the 
Diocese of North Carolina, thirteen from the Diocese of East Carolina, 
and eighteen from the District of Asheville. 

One of our girls spent about three-fourths of the year at the State 
Sanatorium in Hoke County. We have passed stringent rules against 
admitting any child into the Orphanage affected with tuberculosis and 
the only cases we now have in the Institution are of »uch a mild form 
as not to be a menace to the other children. 

During the year the surgical operations were as follows: One for 
goitre, two for appendicitis, one for abscess, one for mastoids and 
twenty-two for the removal of the tonsils, twenty-six of the children had 
their teeth treated, fourteen had influenza and seventeen had scabies, or 
itch. 

Dr. Wingate and Dr. Tucker have continued to look after the health 
of the children with the assistance of the other physicians and dentists 
of the city, to all of whom we wish to express our thanks. 

Mr. Frank M. Shannonhouse, our attorney, has always been ready 
to give his efficient service whenever called upon. 

The Standard Ice and Fuel Company and the City Water Works have 
continued their usual favors for which we feel most grateful. 

I hereto append my statement as treasurer. 

Respectfully submitted,

APPENDIX X 
Address of the Bishop 

Brethren of the Clergy and Laity : 

Grace be unto you, and Peace from God, our Father, and 
from the Lord Jesus Christ : 

I greet you again in Annual Convention, and pray for God's 
directicHi and blessing in our Consultations for the advancement 
of His Kingdom. 

The many activities of the Church in the last few years have 
shown how the people are more and more realizing that we are 
living in an age and tmder conditions that call for much more in 
the way of service than can be given on Sunday and occasional 
week-day gatherings in the Parish Church. 

We are finding out that the Church must be interested more 
than ever before in the every day life of the people. This desire 
for service calls for an opportunity to do something more than 
merely to teach Sunday School and preside at Guild meetings and 
visit the sick and attend to the many other things small or great 
that have for generations been regarded as belonging to the 
Church goer and average member. 

This desire for activity along Church lines manifests itself in 
the formation in so many places of the Church Service League, 
intended to federate all societies of women in the Church for the 
purpose of forming a plan that will embrace the five fields of 
service : Parish — Community — ^Diocese— Nation — and World. 

As each worker catches the vision, her enthusiasm increases 
and she is not content to confine her activities to the work of any 
single parish. No parish, however large and active, is sufficient 
to enlist the entire interest of the woman who has once gained 
the vision of the World-wide expanse of the Kingdom of God. 

This same spirit too is engaging the attention of the men. 
Here and there men are realizing that there is something worth- 
while in the efforts that are being made to conquer the whole 
world. "Like a mighty army moves the Church of God" is 
listened to and by some men the words are more than empty 
sounds. 



S6 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

On occasions like this we try to leave behind, for the time 
being, the first two circles of service, the Parish and the Com- 
munity, and fix our attention upon the Diocese, the Nation^ and 
the World. 

Since meeting with you last year it has been my privilege to 
attend the Lambeth Conference. These Conferences are held 
every ten years in the city of London and a^'e composed of 
Bishops of the Church from all parts of the world. No one 
could attend one of the conferences without having his vision 
greatly enlarged. He sees the Church at work in its most exten- 
sive and at the same time in its most intensive activities. 

At the Conference in London last summer, the central theme 
of fellowship was emphasized, not local but world fellowship. 
In the encyclical letter it is said : 

"We find that one idea runs through all our work in this 
Conference, binding it together into a true unity. It is an idea 
prevalent and potent throughout the world today. It is the idea 
of fellowship." 

"To a world that craves for fellowship, we present our 
message. The secret of life is fellowship. So men feel and it 
is true. The secret of life is the double fellowship, fellowship 
with God and with men." 

"In order to accomplish its object, the Church must itself 
be a pattern of fellowship. It is only by showing the value and 
power of fellowship in itself that it can win the world to 
fellowship." 

"Men in all communions" (after the war) "began to think of 
the reunion of Christendom, not as a laudable ambition or beauti- 
ful dream, but as an imperative necessity." 

Movements of so great import as this one of the reunion 
jf Christendom, of this bringing together of the world in fellow- 
ship, must of necessity advance slowly. The Lambeth Confer- 
ence has thrown out the idea to \the world and it will grow to 
fruitage. 

The coming together of delegates from so small an area 
as our District even should have something of an enlarging effect 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 57 

upon each one as he comes in contact with others of entirely dif- 
ferent visions, but intent upon one goal to be reached. 

If we keep the vision, the great vision of the Kingdom before 
us, our small and trifling anxieties, over local difficulties fade 
away, and we realize more and more our dependence upon one 
another. 

CLERICAL SALARIES. 

Thanks are due our N. W. C. Committee and all who helped 
them for the results obtained, which have enabled our Missionary 
Committee to increase very materially the salaries of our clergy. 
Some yet are perhaps inadequately provided for, but as the high 
cost of living has been greatly reduced, we hope all our clergy 
will find the readjustment will be such as to enable them to live 
comfortably and do their best work. 

SCHOOLS. 

Our four Industrial Schools have done as good work as 
possible. On account of the abnormally high prices of labor and 
material last summer, neither the Patterson School nor the Valle 
Crucis School was able to finish their new buildings for occupancy 
during last winter but both will be ready for the next school term. 
They are semi-fireproof buildings and have been erected at a 
marvelously low cost when we consider the excellent character of 
the structures. 

The low cost was due to the fact that both schools had saw 
mills and machinery for cutting and preparing their own lumber 
from the school farms. The satisfaction the teachers and pupils 
will have in the new buildings will be very great after having 
to occupy for so. long over-crowded and cramped quarters. 

The Appalachian School at Penland has adopted the plan of 
a winter vacation instead of summer, and we hope this wiH be 
found a most satisfactory arrangement. 

The Finance Committee of the District finds the accounting 
systems jof the schools not satisfactory and will probably re- 
commend that a uniform system be adopted for all the schools. 
This committee will recommend a book for the purpose and I am 
sure all the schools will most gladly adopt the same and avail 
themselves of the expert suggestions of the Finance Committee. 



58 DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 

woman's auxiliary 

The women have done, perhaps, more than their share in tke 
advance work of the District, and have so thoroughly caught the 
new spirit of the age in their desire for service, that the next 
step will be perhaps taken by them at this Convention and they 
will ask to organize as a Diocesan Church Service League. This 
organization has already been formed in some of the parishes, 
and it is hoped that each Rector in our District will, as soon as 
possible, form such a league in his parish. 

SUNDAY SCHOOLS. 

The Sunday Schools too have caught the vision of the greater 
Opportunities for service. This awakened spirit is perhaps well 
indicated by an indirect measure of the children's interest. Two 
Sunday Schools of the District gave, each, more for their Lenten 
offering than the whole District used to give. These two Sunday 
Schools are St. James', Hendersonville, and Trinity, Asheville. 
All the schools have likewise advanced in their interest, as shown 
by reports and Lenten offerings. 

CLERGY CHANGES. 

We have lost during the year by removal, four clergy, two 
to the North Carolina Diocese, one to Atlanta, and one to New 
Mexico, and we have gained by transfer three others, one from 
North Carolina and two from South Carolina. 

We have several important vacancies to be filled and our 
authorities dealing with' the matter are at work to secure suitable 
men for these places. 

NATION WIDE CAMPAIGN. 

The Nation Wide Campaign Committee has carried out its 
program this year most effectively and at very little expense, and 
we thank the committee most warmly. The quietness and ease 
with which this has been done are not to be considered as indi- 
cation of indifference but rather as marks of well directed effi- 
ciency. 

The results of the Campaign last year and thus far in this 
year are beyond the expectations of the most sanguine, as ex- 
pressed when the Campaign was first proposed. 



DISTRICT OF ASHEVILLE 59 

mOCBSAN ORGANIZATION. 

The working of the Nation Wide Campaign xn our District 
has developed so much latent strength that it seems we are now 
fiaanciaUy able to assume Diocesan organization 

It seems to have been the custom in the past for Missionary 
Districts to take action for organization into a Diocese at their 
annual Convention preceding the next General Convention and as 
our next convention will probably meet several months before the 
1922 General Convention, the 1922 Convention of Uie District will 
be the most suitable for our organization, and die Special Com- 
mittee appointed to look into this matter will proably so advise. 
Accordingly I hereby give canonical notice to aM parishes and 
missions that they elect and .send to the Annual Meeting of our 
Convention in 1922, (time and plan to be fixed by this conven- 
tion,) their delegates prepared to take part in organizing the 
District into a Diocese in accordance with Article V, Section I, of 
the Constitution. 

My advice is that the time of our meeting in Convention be 
fixed as near the end of the fiscal year as possible. I ask to print 
in the Journal the summary of the official acts and the Bishop's 
diary without reading the same to the Convention at this time.

ALFRED H. STUBBS, 

Treasurer. 

Asheville, N. C. 
March 24th, 1921. 

Complying with instructions received from the Finance 
Committee of the Missionary District of Asheville, I have 
examined the accounts of the Rev. Alfred H. Stubbs, Treas- 
urer of the District. 

I find all Expenditures made by him supported by 
proper receipts and vouchers, and that the ledger balances 
as stated above, showing the financial condition of the Dis- 
trict, on Dec. 31, 1920, are correct, and that the amount of 
cash on hand, as therein stated, is on deposit in the Battery 
Park Bank, to the credit of the Treasurer of the District, 
and subject to his check. 

D. G. DEVENISH, 

Public Accountant.
